CAN YOU TAKE SOMETHING GOOD AND MAKE IT BETTER? Australian firm @grandawood are Queensland-based producers, importers and distillers of oud. In 2017 they formed a partnership with the late Jonathon Midgley of Damask Perfumery. He used their “Oud Evergreen” oil and enhanced it with other notes to create an alcohol-based spray perfume: Oud Spirit. The Oud Evergreen Jonathon used is a fresh, tangy, green and slightly leathery oud which has been enhanced, rather than obscured. As the product hits the skin, it packs a powerful punch and is unmistakably based on real oud in all its shocking glory. Only a matter of seconds later, the fragrance changes as other notes emerge. My first thought is lemon blossom, sending shoots of sweet citrus nectar into the composition. Next, vanilla and leather arrive. Sweetness increases, but is tempered by the sultry powderiness of leather. I’m told by the brand that this leather effect is coming from the oud itself and in fact, this makes sense. Further into the wearing I sense another sweet note, perhaps slightly medicinal. It could be benzoin. There is something herbal like sage. I don’t know if it is sage, or just the herbal qualities of the oud, but it’s good. Now I can detect a frankincense note, dry and crisp, blending with the lemon blossom, vanilla, oud and leather. The composition seems to change continuously. I even occasionally get an effect like lemon meringue pie on a crunchy biscuit base - but the oud is still there. Every time I smell it, something has changed and a new aspect emerges in the composition. This is definitely a good sign, reflecting the quality of the perfumer’s work This is a great composition that will please oud lovers everywhere. It’s elegant and restrained but also full of character. It also really projects and seems to last for hours on skin. I can imagine wearing this in any weather as it’s warm, fresh and clean all at the same time. I wish Grandawood all the best with this product as I believe it’s going to stir up a lot of interest both domestically and overseas. #oud #oudh #aoud #agarwood #grandawood #oudspirit #fragrance #sprayperfume

A tribute to the perfumer, the creator: Jonathon Midgley

Creating an agarwood perfume is a challenging task because of its compound complexity. Without skill, this precious oil will be wasted away.

We discovered Jonathon through an article from a local paper: The Courier mail knowing he has worked with Agarwood (Oud) before

"5. Thoth - a male perfume created by Midgley. "Pronounced Toth, it's named after the Egyptian god with the ibis beak. There's a really rare aromatic oil in it called oud - which is probably my favourite perfume raw material that's natural (and costs $46,000 per kilo)."

You might already know, Thoth was Jonathon's nickname too, the owner of Damask Perfumery, located at 11 Holden St., Woolloongabba 4102  Queensland, Australia

We were both excited about developing a new genuine Oud fine fragrance

i just received it now and cant wait to try it out!

Thank you - the perfume is great, very interesting! when i first applied to my skin i thought ; this is too spicy and very high pitched sharp scent, but after a few minutes it changes and becomes very soft and rich and creamy! it changes so much and becomes really rich. to me the oud smell becomes more apparent later as it dries

OUD SPIRIT- GLORY OF THE PAIN - Evergreen Superior

After one week of using this product as it was (without adding the Evergreen Superior Agarwood oil vial), I found it very soft and often times personal. It was the type of product and fragrance where I shared it with no one and it was a pleasant surprise. It went on the skin quickly and lingered for a very short time. Over the course of the day, I could smell dusty notes to it and knew that it would last a little longer until I returned home. Today, I decided to go all the way and used the contents of the vial. It gave the bottle and the already added oil a kick that was wonderfully over powering. By the time I had lunch, I was smelling the oil most powerfully. It, again lasted throughout the day and into the late evening. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a delicious 'punch' in their bottle. Grandawood has done a great job in getting this product out and I am more than happy with it.

Eau de parfum: OUD SPIRIT- GLORY OF THE PAIN- 30 ml perfume

This is one spray oud I liked very much, a favorite. I figured if my soul, my Inner Being had an aroma, it would more than likely, be this one. It went on sweet and wonderfully, one spray was all it took and lasted well into the late night. I honestly can not find the words to express the "WOW" in this product. It was one of the first off the line in the ouds and remains that way. Grandawood has some amazing and extraordinary aromas and scents. One would be hard pressed to truly find one that one could call their own. If you've any doubts as to where to begin your journey in ouds, try this small, trail size spray vial. After one weeks' use, I still have plenty left over. I highly recommend this one for starters. Enjoy!

What an experience

The sample gets me excited, although I can't afford the full bottle, this one is definitely a good choice. Woody, spicy, sweet and bitter. Citrus at the beginning and it booms booms booms !
